Brandon Rios Vows To Show 'Old Bam Bam' With Chaves

BRANDON RIOS

"When you are on top of the world there are people who always want to be with you. I didn't really know some of them but they wanted to be close to me.

"But when you are at the lowest point in career, no one comes around.

"No one seems to care.

"This is why my fight against Diego Chaves is do or die for me. And I want to make it a 'do' and not the 'die' part.

"I promised Robert (Garcia, chief trainer) I would follow his instructions in the gym and do whatever it takes. I told Robert I want to be the old 'Bam Bam' again.

"I don't need that strength and conditioning stuff.  It drained me actually. I am naturally a strong person and I won a lot of fights before without it.

"They tell me (Diego) Chaves is real rough and strong. That he can punch hard.

"That's ok with me. I want to come back and against a strong, tough fighter.

"The old Bam Bam - the one who everyone knows - will be back in the
ring on August 2."

ROBERT GARCIA

"After the Pacquiao fight, Brandon got rid of a lot of people. He was
quiet and doing family stuff. We traded texts and that was about
it for a long time.

"When Brandon got back to the gym we went back to old school training. Rough stuff. Brandon is much more dedicated and more importantly is listening to everything I say and executing my instructions.

"Brandon is ready to fight. Bam Bam is back."

Rios is approaching full retard mode. Don't know what he means by the old Bam Bam is back. That only can mean that he was fighting smaller fighters when he was draining himself to make weight.

Old bam bam, new bam bam, current bam bam. Pretty much the same thing

Chaves has most of the skills advantages over Rios, but I don't think I've seen him display certain skills are are needed to maintain against Rios and that is a jab, exemplary footspeed, or clinch work. Chaves will probably have…

Sorry guyz, not a fan of Rios. I tried, but the guy's a punching bag waiting to happen, isn't that bright at all, and eventually will get dropped and stopped. And Chavez is no pushover. He was hanging in there…
